These videos are a dedication to all teachers who have made a difference in our lives!

We all remember that special teacher who has made a difference in our lives — helping us see the world differently, making us feel proud, motivating us to try harder, egging us on from failure to success. Some of us have even been lucky enough to have more than one. These videos are a dedication to all such teachers making a difference.

This video conveys a very powerful message - Words can change the way people understand or see you. Choose yours well.

The Dot

Sometimes you will get a little one who is sensitive and says "I can't draw".  This video based on The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds is good motivation for teachers in such situations. It conveys the message that you do not have to be an artist to enjoy drawing.

We All Need To Practice Emotional First Aid

Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.

The Technology of The Heart

In telling his story, The Karmapa urges us to work on not just technology and design, but the technology and design of the heart.

A Life of Purpose

Pastor Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose-Driven Life," reflects on his own crisis of purpose in the wake of his book's wild success. He explains his belief that God's intention is for each of us to use our talents and influence to do good.
